Florence Mack, Military Bride Bigamy Fraudster – New York, 1944

FULL TEXT: A marriage to a Chinese merchant at the Brooklyn marriage license bureau in 1935, and two other marriages performed without the convenience of a previous divorce are keeping Mrs. Florence Nickerson Milhouse Richardson Pang Mack, 32, guessing about her fate today.

The much married Mrs. Mack was arraigned in Federal Court yesterday on charges of illegally receiving Government allotment checks from a navy seaman, her third mate on the matrimonial sea, with no divorce on the records. Commissioner Garrett W. Cotter held her in $1,000 bail.

The three husbands are Bernard Richardson, whom she married in Manhattan in 1931; Theodore Pang, the Chinese merchant, and Christian J. Mack, a sailor now in the Pacific, with whom she tied the knot 18 months ago.
